Broadhead Practice
« on: August 24, 2014, 06:32:09 PM »
Hello Friends,

Does anyone know of a range that has a broadhead target, near Puyallup?  I found out recently that mech's are illegal, because that is completely logical, and i need to test some fixed out.

Or, if someone has one for purchase, I would pay for a used one...

Thanks,

Nolan

Skookum archery range in Puyallup has sand broad head pits out to fifty yards. I don't shoot into the sand rather I just place my own broad head target in the sand.

Yeah, I don't want to shoot right into sand, and I don't have a broad head target, but I did see that area when I was there today. I love that range.

There is the Tacoma sportsmen club but I don't know if they have a broad head range, you could give them a call.

They have a single broadhead shooting lane that has a sand backstop, Id just take my own scrap target or my Rhinehart and be good to go.

Nothing wrong with shooting into sand.  Yes, it dulls the blades but buy a replaceable blade broadhead and your good to go.
